Did You Meet the Home & Garden Challenge?

Home & Garden Challenge

Ernie Davis plants a white birch for the Home & Garden Challenge!

On a single weekend, May 14th & 15th, thousands of landscapes and homes were transformed, retrofitted and revitalized as part of the 350 Home & Garden Challenge. Thousands took to the streets, the garden, schoolyard, home, apartment and city hall to take actions big and small. Together they showed how we will grow food, conserve water, save energy and build community. Amidst a dizzying array of crises and mounting despair, these actions bring the hope of transition and show what we are capable of with our heads, hearts and hands aligned in action.

Global Awareness Local Action (G.A.L.A,) volunteer Ernie Davis (pictured above) took part in this historic event by planting a birch tree just outside the G.A.L.A. office at 365 Water Village Rd. Ossipee, NH. Three of these birches were donated by The Restaurant. A light drizzle kept the black flies at bay and offered a perfectly damp soil for the transplanting of this young paper birch, appropriately New Hampshire’s state tree!
